A little disappointing after The Music of Time. What a delight Old fashioned views of a pre internet world that I have only seen in movies In places very funny and dense with great characterisations of some complex individuals all prancing around together in a very ephemeral diplomatic world Will read of Anthony Powell when I can Small book but read it slowly as there are many chuckles.

Anthony Powell s Venusberg, written between the wars, is a story of unrequited love and one man s way of dealing with it It is comic and tragic, but all the time shows the qualities of refinement and gentility with which people of a certain class lived. A sad story loosely based on a medieval German legend Can see how Powell honed his craft later on Enjoyed it well enough but wasn t spectacular. Ü Venusberg Ü A light comic romp with bleak undertones Reminded me of watching an Ernst Lubitsch film Mildly entertaining but insubstantial.
quite funny What impresses me most about re reading Powell s early work is how much humour I missed in my younger years It is deadpan, dry, quiet humour, but very funny nonetheless. I had heard of Powell, but honestly picked this up on a whim, drawn mostly by the striking cover art of the new UChicago Press edition and the description on the back, which made it sound like a sardonic version of a PG Wodehouse tale Which is almost exactly what it turned out to be a genuinely funny, though much darker and cynical take on feckless young Britons of a certain class Even just on the strength of this early work, I m surprised the Powell isn t well known a British Stefan Zweig or Robert Walser, as perceptive as either but funnier than both I can t wait to begin Powell s epoch spanning Dance to the Music of Time.
